When life’s pressures invade my space,
I escape to my secret place.
No one knows where that might be,
it’s not on land, nor air or sea.
My secret place is a wonderland,
it holds no fears I understand,
that nothing in the world can find me,
here with my thoughts and dreams beside me.
I wonder in a field of dreams,
that feed my open mind it seems,
with all the riches of success,
the answers to questions I must address.
Then swimming in a pool of thoughts,
understanding past lost battles fought,
I realise the strength in me,
the courage, honour and dignity.
I can reach most any goal,
if I put in my heart and soul.
Stand up against any man,
this is who I really am.
All this I have found in my secret place,
where I am given so much space,
when I am searching I might find,
the rhyme and reason of any kind.
My secret place, no one can find.
That secret place lays in my mind.
